This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Leaves.
Nature grows slowly in the permafrost. And yet, time passes, and surely; the whole territory in Russia still bears the scars of the Soviet Union but they become less visible every year.
Spotted in the small mining town of Mirny, in Yakutia: an old Soviet sign that is struggling to exist in an environment that wants to get the upper hand.
Photo taken in July 2016.
